Replaced the speedometer cable and the interior shaft is not quite long enough to work.

Added new seat covers

Had my covers redone by Jims Top Shop in Austin. I kept the original design but changed the colors to match the jeep.

$900 total. He had them done in 1 week. The material is supposed to feel like mercedes benz leather. But you can get these wet and clean them off with 409. I have no idea what mercedes benz leather feels like. It does feel good though!

Re-install Fuel Tank

Last night I replaced my fuel tank. 84 CJ7 has the optional 20 gal. poly tank. Started by replacing the entire speedo cluster as the fuel and temp gauges didn't work. Then dropped the tank, cleaned, primed and coated the skid pan, the rubber mat that surrounds the tank was in great shape so cleaned it and reinstalled it. Cleaned the inside of the tank, it was amazingly clean! Replaced the fuel sending unit, had to order twice as the first one was for a 15 gal. tank. Second one came with strainer screen that was a little too large to stay on the pick up line so researched whether JB Weld would hold up to gas--they say yes--so I used it to hold the strainer on the line (all this took a week of spare time). Replaced all the fuel and vapor lines. And put the tank back in last night. In the past week while gathering all the right parts I epoxy coated the fuel filler assembly and painted the screw heads that hold it in. Put some gas in, and it started right up. As others have posted the replacement fuel sending unit tubes have to be bent up a little to connect the lines. NOW MY FUEL GAUGE WORKS!!!!!! Thanks again to all who posted on how to do this project. I took photos of all the parts and their numbers but can't post them as I am newly registered to the site--have been studying many of the builds for the past couple of months.

Robrich, How many gallons of paint is required to paint your Jeep? I am going to be painting my Jeep this summer and I am thinking of jumping on that e-bay deal! Thanks! - Vince

Well 1 gallon should do it but at this price I'm thinking about ordering a little more for touch up just to have it, trust me, buy an extra pint of the wetlook hardener my painter says he is using a little more than the specs call for. I have to order it tonight. Be prepared to put like 2 to 3 coats on at a time as you have to spray it at almost 70 PSI because of the high metallic content he's already down to 1/3 of the pint and still has a half gallon of paint. Joe the painter says he has to dry dust it a few times before it wants to stick well. Sure am glad I'm using aguy who paints regularly because from what I see it takes a practiced hand and a working knowledge of paint application.

He told me today it may not be done til Wednesday as he has other jobs to do in the mean time. He still has to spray the windshield channel, half doors and the tub. I guess that buys me time to run the light blue aluminum fuel lines and the tranny cooler lines. I was putting them off to hurry for paint.

Replaced the old ignition coil with an MSB Blaster II today.
And judging by the looks of it, the old coil could have been the one that was installed at the factory, back in 1980...

Just put the driver's seat and the rear seat back in, holding off on the passenger's side until my boy runs the stereo wiring and installs the console. My go back out in a bit and hook up the heater hoses, weather is less than favorable right now so it may wait til another day. But I'm board, I don't sit inside well.

Getting real close.
